  1. It's pronounced with the "jay" instead of "yay", http://inogolo.com/pronunciation/d145/Camilo_Villegas verified by Camilio himself. http://www.golf.com/golf/tours_news/...678835,00.html http://www.thegolfchannel.com/core.a...FD22A1219072#7 Some spanish dialects pronounce the double L's as "J" instead of the norm "Y".
  2. Ya, It's kinda hard for us to make a recomendation when we have no idea what it is you're trying to do. Replacing the 5W with a hybrid? Or getting a hybrid just get one? Is there a particular reason you want the hybrid? a yardage you need filled? etc...
  3. You CAN'T change the loft of a driver anymore than you can any other club. But you can change your launch angle by opening/closing the face, ball position, ball types, and of course shafts. If you are getting high launch angles that are causing you distance, abd you don't think it's your swing or don't want to change your swing then a new shaft is your best bet. But IMHO, if you are getting extreme launch angles then there's something in your swing/setup causing it.
  4. Just keep it clean and dry. I've had my SM Oilcan for 6 months and the finish is perfect everywhere except obviously the face and sole. Just wipe it dry after using/cleaning. To spot clean that surface rust spot just use water and a towel. Once it's off, just keep it dry and it won't rust. Rust needs 3 things- oxygen, water, iron.
  5. I was thinking the same thing...$2 2 liter of coke...and you can drink what you don't use. Plus it does all the work for you. Put it in a pan with the wedge and soak it overnight. No rubbing. No wirebrushing. Just wipe it dry.
  6. Gross as it sounds, spit works wonders. At the range when I'm practicing, I'll put a lil spit on the club face, on both irons and driver, and wipe it clean/dry. Not only will it show you exactly where you are hitting on the clubface for 10 shots, it also shows the compression on the driver face.
  7. Your's was quite a well written review, and combined with the site's review gives a complete overview on functions and operation not covered individually. Thanks for taking the time to write it
  8. Wow. I read your blogs...then read your posts on this forum...then read your blogs... Again, I strongly urge people to take his pov with a grain of salt. I'll take the high road and leave it at that.

  10. Seriously tho, who cares what any of us think. If the 7w is the club for you for that distance, then use it. As Iacas said, VJ does. And I just watched Allenby..or was it Appleby hit a 7W onto the par3 6th at the pga championship. I don't carry a 5 or 7 because, well, I like my hybrids and hit them well both off the fairways and rough. I would think that a hybrid might be better out of the rough than a 7w, but it's all personal preference.
  11. Ah I guess I read too much into what you wrote and more than a bit confused. As far as taking you out of context, there really wasn't much context to go on. "RELAX - Pure rubbish! How many times have you heard this golf swing tip from a golf pro or a playing partner? The golf swing is a violent action - is there any other violent action you take when you relax? - of course not - This is foolish advice." What are we to deduct from that? You wouldn't tell someone who swings smooth with a good tempo to relax. Only someone who is tense. If they are tense, they aren't swinging to thier ability. Telling them to relax and loosen up means to ease up and loosen thier musclesand swing smoothly, not herky jerky. I would also point out that a golf pro would probably recognize if someone was tense when they advise them to relax, not someone who already has a smooth swing. So we understand you as telling someone who is tense to relax as foolish advice. Regardless, there seems to be some miscommunication. Maybe you could explain what "relax" means to you in the context you put it in that didn't translate in the post. Btw, congrats on going from a 8-10 handicapper to a +2 in 1 year. that's quite an accomplishment.

    Kim's shoes

    My bad, I coulda sworn I saw the scallops that are unique to the Sp-8's, but then again using slow motion on the dvr and trying to get a close look at his shoes while putting isn't as good as a hires photo.

    Kim's shoes

    He's wearing Nike SP-8 Tiger Wood's Tours. http://www.worldwidegolfshops.com/Me...roduct_Count=7 I recently bought the Nike SP-8 Tour Limited Edition PGA Championship's over Adidas Tour 360 II's. These shoes are fantastic. 4 rounds of walking and they are still spotless. It didn't hurt that they were marked down from $169.99 to $99! http://www.worldwidegolfshops.com/Me...roduct_Count=5
  14. And that was at relative sealevel, imagine him hitting those at altitude where they hold the tourneys.
  15. You are correct sir. This gave me an excuse to watch it all over again and I took notes. Hole... yds...Garcia... Kim 1...... 448... 323 ... 300 2...... 456... 342... 350 4...... 352... 303... 311 5...... 463... 298 ... 291 6( 3w ) 500... oob... 263 7...... 601... 330 ... 318 9...... 416... 289... 316 10..... 594... 316... 322 12..... No info, only showed putting 13( 3w )352... 255 ... 230 Drives won: Garcia 3 Kim 4 Each also won a 3W off the tee. Kim was much more accurate. Garcia hit rough on 1, unplayable on 6, bunker on 9 which cost him distance. Regardless, they both were incredible and it was my fav match of the day. Westwood had blisters and needed his diaper changed. Garcia was on antibiotics, possibly due to flu. He requested to be sat out on Sat. Contrary to popular belief, many PGA Pro's can hit well over 300-350yds. They just don't due to course conditions and try to put themselves in better scoring opportunities. This course was cut for the long hitters. Zinger had the rough cut down so his bombers could go for the long one's without fear of losing the ball into a bad lie in the rough. Even Perry at 48 hit 350.
